My first exposure ro this wonderful organizarion was at my chirch. For years each third sinday we have sold fairtrade coffee and chocolate after worship., they joined us for this. And what a reception they received. We of course could no longer particpate when the pandemic hit as we were not worshiping in person. As they switched gears a bit and started delivering to customers, I often volunteered to drive. I continue to support them by ordering frequently and buying at their pop ups. Not to mention the quality of the food - wonderful!
I have been connected to the refugee community in Clarkston for quite a few years. Just Bakery does a wonderful job in providing job training , jobs, and a fair wage to the members of this community, I can’t wait till we can host them again when we get back to in person worship.
We have been Just Bakery supporters from its beginning. We donate and we regularly purchase their delicious baked goods. All their products are top quality -- we buy their granola (and cookies, biscotti, muffins, etc.) every week! The work this organization does is amazing, training and providing refugees with a living wage and creating a spirit of community among the workers, all with limited resources but extremely resourceful leadership. .
We are lucky to have Just Bakery around ATL! After enjoying the baked goods for a long time, I was asked to be on the board. That has allowed me to see up close the amazing things they do to change lives. My only hope is that JBA can continue to grow and train our new American friends for many years to come!
I was already involved with Memorial Drive Ministries when Just Bakery was begun. Their motivating purpose is to provide wonderful training for persons who come as immigrants from other countries who want to learn a trade that will provide them with a way to support themselves here. The products are so delicious they sell themselves. I got involved to begin with by making donations. When I retired, I began to deliver orders around the Atlanta and Decatur areas. It is a joy to share in this ministry and indeed to purchase items I can enjoy with my family. It is one of my favorite nonprofits.
